And buy tickets -- -- That right -- options should state lawmakers because the state owns the superdome which is hosting the Super Bowl in effect they can do this to all of the super. They have the right to purchase tickets even the sold out events even to the Super Bowl mean. And you know we host the BCS national champion on the other big big -- yet. Anything that goes on the Dominican by.

UC goddess. You think that's good bad -- some analysis to wanted them and he told -- six exceeded nine theory that -- text -- -- 87870. Is that something that makes sense to you should state lawmakers. Have the ability to buy tickets to events like these Super Bowl at the superdome it. The public can't get their hands on to that be a perk of the job should that be some -- it comes with the territory because the state owned the building. Or is that unfair that they have that. Privilege yeah and I don't I've heard so much about you know -- inflated prices and things on the Internet that I haven't really seen just a plain -- Straight ticket yet but I don't just not solving -- -- you know massage another Lindsay definitely ever gone down while not.

Cents. 5:1 hey good morning I'm Dave Allen thanks for joining us on the early edition of WW golfer says the stick out forecast. -- 20% rain chance today otherwise warm and a little bit much 76 this afternoon and tonight. Lows falling into the mid sixties to rain chances on the way for first thing Wednesday in fact a line of storms will move through. Some could be strong to severe got to be a cold front dropping Temps from around seventy into the sixties. And Thursday much cooler with sunshine in height 58. But the Eyewitness News forecast center and meteorologist Laura backed out. Right now we have 67 degrees partly cloudy the international airport southeast wind at five miles an hour muggy 96% relative humidity it's cloudy and 68 in -- coming up I'll share some of your comments on. State lawmakers getting to -- face value tickets to the Super Bowl and in less than ten minutes. While I check in with CBS is as President Obama travels to Las Vegas today. Where the big question is should millions of illegal immigrants in this country. Being given a pass and allowed to stay in the nation legally. Or should we try to send millions of illegal immigrants. Back where they came from will be talking about that this morning as well. Talk about or sports. And that we say good morning Steve Geller an ally yet I'm doing great and you. Tuesday and that means receivables one day closer it. It's a national holiday -- it. Yeah me to be. You are -- -- you have on the field media generally don't propose any players. Some of the Spanish. -- at. But this -- sports about that. -- little bit of big good news and bad news for the saints. First with the good general manager Mickey Loomis received a contract extension that runs through 2017. That he was actually agreed to last all -- but the team chose not to go disclose it publicly. Until Monday now for the bad news commissioner Roger Goodell says that the team will not be getting back their second round draft pick. In April's draft. Losing this year's and last year's second round selections were part of the penalties that they received for the alleged bounty program. The ravens have a ride to town ahead of super Sunday matchup against the 49ers. And Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh was asked now that he's here in New Orleans has said in that he and his team. Have advanced to the big game. Really said under the bus ride down that interstate on the way to provenance. From Gillette Stadium that's gonna set in and that we are into -- opponent. So that was driving delve in our minds and you know it's time that it was time to -- -- points we -- -- of these guys for weeks. Just how dominant was Tiger Woods at the Farmers Insurance open well he gave up. Four shots over the last five holes and still won with ease and he continued his -- his success at Torrey Pines. Which became the first PGA tour player to win eight times at a single course and says that getting to work on his short game really paid off. It was nice built -- to now not -- some golf balls and work on my short game and I think that's where you've seen of the rounds evolves. I'm saving a shot here -- shot there and you know that's leading to a birdie here birdie there in the next you know it's a 34 shots like. And the hornets are in LA to battle Kobe Bryant and the lakers this evening tip off on 1053 F spends a late one at 930. Today -- -- on sports talk since this will not get their second round draft pick back. Who should stay who should go and who should the team go after -- Steve -- winter early morning exports does that to. With the former commissioner throwing out the suspensions against the players did you think that maybe the sense we're gonna get their second round draft pick back. I -- really think there was a good shot of that happening is because he had left it open ended to begin with that. You know it was a possibility that the pick could be reinstated. And then coming out yesterday during that -- Q&A session. It was kind of I wouldn't say shocking but it was deathly. Disappointing yet -- because. We we've talked about before how you've already affected one season for the saints and now you're going. And affecting now yet -- yet again and another season which I just. Don't feel is -- -- so that was the bad news for the -- what was the goodness and I -- I was so focused on the bad -- I -- the good news for Mickey -- got re -- he's going to be with the same tactics that -- 2017 so -- -- your shoulder -- contract those two will be together and I are and that's a good thing you think because they're the ones who engineered all the success the -- -- -- in recent years they're the ones who brought the -- the super -- got on the victory. Yet that's -- like Kevin and team intact it's a great combination the saints have right now on the front office you -- Mickey Loomis. On the sidelines you got Sean -- and on the field you got Drew -- that's that's a win win win situation. Fantastic thank you Steve talking about fifteen now about twenty minutes or sports that well AM -- them. And -- accountability forecast without changing weather on the way after that. Some of your comments detecting very interesting at 878 cents. Five point seven president of the Eyewitness News forecast that there. For your Tuesday increasing clouds at 20% chance for a shower and -- later 76. Than tonight. Lows in the sixties and we're waiting on a cold front to -- then it'll be here first thing Wednesday morning with a line of thunderstorms. Behind it temperatures will fall from seventy into the sixties then Thursday much cooler we're seeing highs only -- 58. But yeah I -- is news forecast center I'm meteorologist -- -- six. Eight degrees south -- -- like 68 degrees north of the -- clouds reported just a little fog and Hammond and -- who's. If the state -- the super down than the public owns it. We pay the taxes shouldn't we get tickets at face value it still says one text message to -- 77 days. Another says state lawmakers getting device that both tickets at face value when -- Al scant as just another example of how we have a ruling class now. This is amazing. Lawmakers making laws to benefit themselves and -- as I'm surprised to get to politicians aren't conference for me. So far nobody's happy about the fact that Louisiana lawmakers can buy tickets to the Super Bowl at face value even though the state owned the building in well they can buy tickets every event there and don't -- it to be a part of the job. Read more of your comments coming up. Been texting me -- 7870. Anyone supports it what it everything gets ripe for state lawmakers to have that for that privilege. Up next CBS news talks about. The president calling a meeting in Las Vegas today asking the question should millions of illegal immigrants in the US we allowed this day. Or should we try to ship them back where they -- 37 minutes after 5 AM at the early edition of WWL first news on the. January 20 ninth 2013. At Super Tuesday yeah I ever did is it going to be super I think so today's Super Tuesday -- super Wednesday down all the way to super Sunday and of course man huge. -- -- I don't think that Super Bowl Sunday against the proper recognition for just a massive holidays it is the biggest delivery day for pizza. Every year out huge games for for bars and restaurants huge day for groceries stores huge day for barbecues and and spreads and buffets and get togethers and parties and you know it's it's a big column its only topped by Thanksgiving for food eating. Grilled on gas and he'll eat more on Thanksgiving that's a second biggest -- day of the year while so yeah I think it is Thursday to be an act now to rebels. -- -- Drinking and eating and another girl time yes yes indeed they haven't good -- time. I'd be fun to go to hang out at media day at the superdome. During media day fans will sit in the stands at the stadium and watched thousands of media from around the world interview members of the participating Super Bowl teams on the field. -- to receive immediate date gift bag of include radio to tune into the days. Coverage of NFL network and listen to some of the individual player interviews from the podium microphone and audio feeds -- point five bucks to get in doors open at eight. Thirty immediately begins at ten. And as a team to take turns on the field. You get a good seat you see the players and -- get to be in the building -- the decked out for the dome when you're watching the game on Sunday MTV can think it was right there. On Tuesday. And now. Still calls actually there is now that's pretty cool. Until I don't think it's cool with state lawmakers are getting tickets to the game I think it's wrong it's being prejudiced -- -- -- -- that beneath them and you know there's always that once again not for the people. Another says this is another example of how we get closer to the allegory animal farm every day literary reference idealistic. State lawmaker should be treated like everyone else there's another text message to date 78 that this -- -- corrupt often this opens the door. To more corrupt activities so far can't find anyone. Who supports this so if you think it's a good idea text me. -- out an 87 -- had a hunch it was going to be a while leaning overwhelmingly are jabs. Speaking of bad idea. Or did you ever go into the bathroom at school take -- and an -- fewer kids are listening now this is not a suggestion. I'm just to the warning on China where your we're gonna talk about what we used to do it as a bad idea don't do. -- out about -- -- you know budget toilet paper on -- get it wet. And then throughout the -- Remember when I read when I was taught the scientific. Information that if you get toilet paper wet. And throw at the ceiling it'll stick. And it'll essentially stay there forever there's -- out at a reduced rising stays there yet well. Given I don't I don't like I thought it was the coolest thing ever when it learned it didn't realize that this is vandalism and some of -- coming clean this up and is a waste of toilet paper well. At one school in Pennsylvania on high school isn't -- elementary school learned it when I was told it not to do it. A high school says the vandalism it's worth the degree -- policy in which paper. As to be taken out of the boy's bathrooms note paper. Although I don't like god so boys at mile area high school now I've been go to school office. Asked for toilet paper stuck.

Steve Geller and sports on this says David Blake called it Super Tuesday. Today 78 members of the biggest client that lawmakers can buy tickets at face value to the Super Bowl people are just jealous if they want the same opportunity let them run for office and get elected.

Hundreds of other text messages think it's -- well we're gonna be fair to you now and if you sports here on WW Oliver that it's Steve Geller good morning -- Good morning and the saints hopes of getting back this year's second round draft pick were dashed. When NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced that the penalty for the teen's alleged bounty program would not be reversed. In all the franchise was docked -- second round draft picks in 2012 and this year along with being 5500000. Dollars. On a positive note that he did announce that general manager Mickey Loomis has a -- deal good through his 20s17. The length of his contract meters that have -- coach Sean Payton looked reaching his new deal last month. The Baltimore Ravens arrived in New Orleans yesterday ahead of their Super Bowl 47 matchup against San Francisco. Retiring ravens linebacker Ray Lewis says he's not thinking about how this will be the last time he prepares to play a football game. Honestly I'm already put it this that's the last thing on my mind because I think the most important thing you know for me to be the leader that I am for my team. And really going to try to win this football game and wrestle with and as we Vilma Myron. Tiger Woods has won at Torrey Pines for the eighth time in the seventh time in the Farmers Insurance open and which closed within even par for fourteen under total four strokes ahead of Josh Streeter and defending champion Brandt Snedeker. The hornets played their first game of the back to back tonight vs the lakers was that tipped ball from the staples center on 1053 FM at 930. And Michigan's number one in the AP college basketball poll for the first time since the start of the 199293. Season. The wolverines received 511 place votes close second ranked Kansas -- thirteen.
